New York, Seattle and San Francisco Leaders Ban Travel to North Carolina

Nick Kangadis | March 29, 2016

There’s a new craze that’s sweeping the nation. From California to the New York Island, North Carolina is not made for you and me. At least that is what the leaders of New York, Seattle and San Francisco want you think (or if you are a state employee, it is what they are making you think).

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee have banned all “city-funded” and “non-essential” travel to the state of North Carolina after the Tar Heel state passed legislation that, according to CNN, is “blocking cities from allowing transgender individuals to use public bathrooms for the sex they identify as -- as well as restricting cities from passing nondiscrimination laws more broadly.”

In his statement, Gov. Cuomo said the following:

From Stonewall to marriage equality, our state has been a beacon of hope and equality for the LGBT community, and we will not stand idly by as misguided legislation replicates the discrimination of the past. As long as there is a law in North Carolina that creates the grounds for discrimination against LGBT people, I am barring non-essential state travel to that state.

My boycott list keeps growing and I can certainly avoid visiting New York, Seattle and San Francisco. I guess they rely on gay tourism dollars or just tax the hell out of the residents. It costs a lot of money to accommodate everyone's equality in socialist paradises.

Same with many of the WNBA players, the Williams "sisters," and Michelle (aka "Michael") Obama as they won't be allowed to use the female public restrooms anymore.

Gov. Pat McCrory: Don’t send Syrian refugees to North Carolina

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory on Monday joined about two dozen other mostly Republican governors in asking the federal government to halt the flow of Syrian refugees into their states.

Their calls came three days after the Paris terror attacks, in which one assailant had what was later found to be a fake Syrian passport.

My primary duty as governor is to keep the citizens of North Carolina safe,” McCrory told reporters in Charlotte.

This transgender nonsense is shouldn't even be an issue.
0.3 percent of the US population are transgender.
That small fraction can hold it until they get home.
Or... use the restroom that matches their parts.
North Carolina isn't sounding so bad to me.

With the sales of adult diapers surpassing baby diapers, this is the group that should avail themselves of such a product. That certainly solves the bathroom issue, don't it?

The brand name "Depends" is quite fitting, no? :chuckle:

PepsiCo CEO asks North Carolina gov to repeal new law

The CEO of PepsiCo, Inc., has joined the growing list of company heads and municipal officials voicing opposing to North Carolina's new law that prevents specific anti-discrimination rules for LGBT people for public accommodations and restroom use.

The Human Rights Campaign and Equality North Carolina released Friday the names of another 10 company executives that have signed on to a letter criticizing the law and seeking its repeal, bringing the number of names to more than 120. New executives include those from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Qualcomm and EMC Corp.
-----
Also on Friday, Pepsico CEO Indra Nooyi sent a letter to McCrory calling on him to consider repealing the measure when the General Assembly convenes in Raleigh later this month.
-----
Separately Friday, the venture capital arm of Google's parent corporation confirmed it won't invest in North Carolina startup businesses while the law is in place. GV spokeswoman Jodi Olson cited written comments by CEO Bill Maris in which he asked his firm's partners to flag possible North Carolina investments because he's "not comfortable deploying dollars into startups there until the voters there fix this." The move was first reported by Re/code, a tech-focused news site.
-----
District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser and Boston's city council also this week banned government-connected travel to North Carolina as a sign of opposition to the law. Similar travel bans have been issued by the governors of Washington, New York and Connecticut and by other cities.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton sent a letter on Saturday banning state employees from nonessential travel to North Carolina because of the law. He directed all state workers to stop all nonessential travel to North Carolina for conferences or other official state business until further notice.

Dang, that's a lot of pressure.
I hope they don't cave in.
